Steve McClaren accepts football manager role at Nottingham Forest

13th June 2011 - Berko Tau

Former England football manager Steve McClaren has been appointed Nottingham Forest boss, following the departure of Billy Davis.

McClaren will be officially in charge of football games for the next three years, and was available after being sacked by German club Wolfsburg in February after just nine months in charge.

Links had been made between the 50-year-old and the vacant coaching role at Aston Villa.

This will be McClaren's first coaching job in England since he was in charge at Middlesbrough, who he took to the Europa League final.

He also led Dutch side FC Twente to their first Eredivisie title in 2010.

Forest chief executive Mark Arthur is pleased to have secured McClaren's signature. "Steve has a proven record of coaching and managing at club level.

"The club moved quickly to secure his services as it is rare for a manager and coach of his undoubted calibre to become available."
